Abdel, an Algerian immigrant living in a Paris slum, applies for a job as carer to a wealthy quadriplegic, so that he can continue to claim benefits. Despite his lack of qualifications, he lands the job because of his attitude. Philippe, the millionaire quadriplegic, wants a carer who will look after him without pitying him. As Abdel reluctantly learns to move, feed, and clean Philippe, the two men discover a blunt but vital humour that not only bridges the cultural and class divide between them, but gives Philippe a renewed joy in life.

A charming memoir of midlife by the bestselling author of Mayflower and In the Hurricane's Eye, recounting his attempt to recapture a national sailing championship he'd won at twenty-two. “There had been something elemental and all consuming about a Sunfish. Nothing could compare to the exhilaration of a close race in a real blow—the wind howling and spray flying as my Sunfish and I punched through the waves to the finish.” In the spring of 1992, Nat Philbrick was in his late thirties, living with his family on Nantucket, feeling stranded and longing for that thrill of victory he once felt after winning a national sailing championship in his youth. Was it a midlife crisis? It was certainly a watershed for the journalist-turned-stay-at-home dad, who impulsively decided to throw his hat into the ring, or water, again. With the bemused approval of his wife and children, Philbrick used the off-season on the island as his solitary training ground, sailing his tiny Sunfish to its remotest corners, experiencing the haunting beauty of its tidal creeks, inlets, and wave-battered sandbars. On ponds, bays, rivers, and finally at the championship on a lake in the heartland of America, he sailed through storms and memories, racing for the prize, but finding something unexpected about himself instead.

Continuous drought season takes a heavy toll on Subodh’s life. As the bank debt piles up, it leaves him with no choice. During one such suicide attempt, Subodh happens to meet Vanhi, a schoolgirl near a railway track. Their initial conversation enlightens him and the grief disappears in no time, because of her innocence and simplicity. All those intentions of committing suicide are metamorphosed by her audacity and the magical tiffin box that she carries. Subodh's incredible journey begins with the little one's brilliance and under the lights of Stephen Noronha. Every obstacle towards his journey creates an opportunity for himself and for the villagers at large. On achieving his ambitious dream, Stephen helps Subodh to deliver a powerful message to all the debt-ridden farmers. "Committing suicide is not the ultimate solution. A person hardly needs a few seconds to commit suicide and be relieved of it. The problem expands multifold, which later one’s family has to bear, lifelong. There exists a thin line between life and death while killing self. The thin lifeline is often neglected and crossed because of the huge burden of loans and poverty. If we remain calm and composed, we can see that thin lifeline, through our savior. The savior can be in any form, a living thing, or any object, close to us. The living thing can be any of our near and dear ones. If we look around patiently, our cattle too can be a rescuer, with their simple touch.”
